Merry Christmas & Happy New Year from the “West Indies”

Christmas is an exciting time of the year with family, friends, lights and decorations, cheery music and festive holiday meals! This is the one day of the year to remind us we have so much to be thankful for!

So, what is the spirit of Christmas? The answer can be said in one sentence “Giving without the thought of getting”. In the West Indies that means serving and giving with extra love and care. We know this is what makes the residents feel the spirit of Christmas!

December is a very busy month for all of us. Here in the West Indies Residents will be taking photos with Santa, decorating cookies, and enjoying a special Christmas party with their loved ones!

Christmas time brings up many memories. I wanted to hear from our residents. Francis M. said, “It is one of the happiest days of the year for me. We work together to make everything lovely for our family.” Patricia R. said, “I love our beautiful Christmas tree with presents that could only be opened on Christmas morning!” Eileen H. shared, “I enjoy Christmas music, hanging stockings on the fireplace and making cookies!” Eleanor W. chimed in with “Beautiful lights and children excited to see Santa Clause.” Sandy S. said, “It is always a very special day for me. All my family joins together and sings Christmas songs!”

And from all our staff and residents here in the West Indies may your family’s holiday be filled with joy and peace. Have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!

From all the West Indies Staff!

Happy 15th Anniversary Paul and Aileen and San Clemente Villas by the Sea!

Wow, and to think I’ve been here for almost 10 years. Many of our residents and staff have been here longer, and an elite group has been here since day one!

That says a lot about our successful family-owned community. Personally I think we all work pretty well together, and yes, it does take a village.

Autumn has arrived, and it’s the start of a busy holiday season. Octoberfest is coming up on October 5th. The food and festivities are always enjoyed by all. As always all are welcome. Yes we are known for wearing our German dirndls & lederhosen! It’s great fun!

Then we’ll be having our Surf & Turf Anniversary lunch October 12th followed up from 5:30-7:30 will be our Anniversary Party featuring “Contraband” a wonderful band playing the “big band sounds” we all love to dance to. We will dress for the occasion in black and silver attire. We’d love to see some tuxes!
And finally we will end our month with a Halloween costume party. It’s a lot of fun to see our residents dress up and sometimes they get real creative. We’ll be having a costume contest so start thinking about it now.

We’re always entertaining our community. Friends and Families please come join in on all the fun we have here or stop by for a tour anytime. Thank you for your continued support.

Please call & ask about our Anniversary Specials happening through October 31st.

Happy Halloween!

September is here! Tourists are gone, it’s the best time to hit the beach. Kids are going back to school. Maybe families have just one last BBQ or weekend camping trip planned. We are so fortunate & blessed to live here in sunny California, and especially here at San Clemente Villas by the Sea. It’s pretty close to an endless summer here. “The cruise ship that never sails.” So remind yourself to take time to sit back and relax, smile and enjoy life! Positive thinkers are healthy people and people I want to be around, it’s contagious!

Our days are gradually getting shorter. Fall begins September 22nd. Days are still warm and pleasant while our nights are getting cooler.

I have 6 grandchildren. One is going into 3rd grade, one is going into 2nd grade, one preschooler, one 3 yr. old and a 10 month old. What an exciting time as I watch my family grow! It’s a busy time also, helping in the classrooms, going to their games, plays, dance recitals, and special occasions. I am so proud of them all! Sometimes it hard to find the time but I always remember they are only young once and to enjoy this while I can. Weekends are usually family time. I absolutely love being a grandma, the grandchildren call me “Mema”. I love them so much, they light up my life! They keep me young and active.

Speaking of being a grandparent, It’s National Grandparents Day on September 8th. So celebrate all you grandparents! I hope you know how incredibly blessed they are to have you. Invite your grandchildren to visit, take them to the pool or reserve our library or private dining room for a family dinner. We welcome everyone, anytime. I feel very lucky to have known and lived with both sets of grandparents as I was growing up. The memories are so vivid and the stories that came to life were part of my childhood. There are so many residents that I’ve gotten to know that have such fascinating lives, and you’d never know until you sit and chat. I encourage everyone to take a moment and ask someone where they’re from or what they did in their lives. Who knows what you’ll learn. It’s a great way to stay active and alert. I’m so happy to be here at the Villas and to have the chance to know so many incredible residents and families.

Love from,

Happy August! from Sherri Saunders, Marketing Director

Sherri Saunders

Happy August everyone! Wow! Higher temperatures – Summer is in full force. We’ve all noticed the heat and humidity and probably are tempted to stay put in our homes with the air conditioning blasting. It’s so important to stay cool and hydrated. I encourage all residents to take full use of our beautiful pool and spa! And if not, to exercise with the wonderful pool aerobics group – they meet everyWednesday during warm weather. You should just enjoy the water and all of its health benefits. So you don’t want to get into a bathing suit? I suggest water shorts and a T-shirt! Believe me once you do, you’ll love it and wonder why you hadn’t done it sooner. Summer is also a time for our lunch BBQs. They are fabulous! We thank Salvador and all our kitchen staff that work so hard to make this possible. We invite families and friends to come and enjoy our BBQs also. If you have a friend who is interested or has any questions or would like a tour, please contact me and we can schedule an appointment. Enjoy these gorgeous summer days. Be positive and keep smiling. Remember, you are loved. We are an amazing Villas family. I feel truly fortunate to be part of the Villas! Have a wonderful month of August!

With Love,
Sherri Saunders, Marketing Director

Happy New Year from all of the West Indies Residents and Staff!


A special thank you to all San Clemente Villas’Residents for contributing to our West Indies Staff employee appreciation bonus! All of us employees appreciated it so much!

And now it’s time for our New Year’s resolutions! Lose weight, exercise, save money, have a better life, and cook dinner without the crock pot! As for me, this year I am going to relax more!

I don’t know about you, but as much as I love the Holiday season, I let out a sigh of relief when it’s passed. Social commitments slow down and it’s time to relax.

We also celebrate Martin Luther King’s birthday January 16th. He was a very strong Civil Rights Activist. Chinese New Year starts on January 28th and lasts for 15 days. According to an old legend, year 2017 is known as the year of the Rooster!

From all our Staff here in theWest Indies may you have a safe, happy and healthy New Year!

Leslie, for Rey, Joe, and the entire West Indies Staff
